Today, my heart breaks a little that I am not in New Orleans with my family and friends. Yesterday, my mom sent me pictures of her and my dad at lundi gras with my cousins, I was so sad. I have only missed Mardi Gras twice now in my entire life. The first time was when I was around 10-12 years old and my parents used the school break to take me to Disney World, which, was a pretty fair trade as a kid. This year marks the second time. We would have gone down in a heart beat, but Joel had a big exam yesterday, which he did incredibly well on.. YAY! So really, it is all worth it, because right now we have other priorities in line. But that doesn't mean I don't miss it.
Listening to these songs today :)
I found some old photos of my years at Mardi Gras that I wanted to share!

And I'll leave you with the only picture I have (on my computer) from my Mardi Gras as a child! My mama sewed this little dress herself :)
My very first Mardi Gras of my life, I was a baby pink crayon! Wish I had a picture (on my laptop) of that!
Happy Mardi Gras everybody!
& laissez le bon temps rouler !
